Tocotrienols, vitamin E compounds that have an unsaturated side chain with three double bonds, selectively inhibited the activity of mammalian DNA polymerase lambda (pol lambda) in vitro. These compounds did not influence the activities of replicative pols such as alpha, delta, and epsilon, or even the activity of pol beta which is thought to have a very similar three-dimensional structure to the pol beta-like region of pol lambda. Since delta-tocotrienol had the strongest inhibitory effect… 
Anti-Tumor Effects of the Glycolipids Fraction from Spinach which Inhibited DNA Polymerase Activity
In an in vivo anti-tumor assay on nude mice bearing solid tumors of HeLa cells, the spinach glycolipids fraction was shown to be a promising suppressor of solid tumors and Histopathological examination revealed that tumor necrosis with hemorrhage was significantly enhanced with the glycolips fraction in vivo.
Inhibitory effects of vitamin K3 on DNA polymerase and angiogenesis.
The results suggest that vitamin K3 may be a potential anti-cancer agent like vitamin K2, which has been shown in angiogenesis models using human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) with regard to HUVEC growth, tube formation on reconstituted basement membrane and chemotaxis.
Tocotrienols, the vitamin E of the 21st century: its potential against cancer and other chronic diseases.
The molecular targets of the tocotrienols and their roles in cancer, bone resorption, diabetes, and cardiovascular and neurological diseases at both preclinical and clinical levels are examined.
Vitamin E and cancer: an update on the emerging role of γ and δ tocotrienols
Vitamin E is a potential candidate due to its safety and the anti-cancer potency of vitamin E has shifted the focus from tocopherols (TOCs) to tocotrienols (TTs), and the roles of γ-TT and δ-TT in the chemoprevention of cancer are evaluated.
Tocotrienol rich fraction supplementation improved lipid profile and oxidative status in healthy older adults: A randomized controlled study
The observed improvement of plasma cholesterol, AGE and antioxidant vitamin levels as well as the reduced protein damage may indicate a restoration of redox balance after TRF supplementation, particularly in individuals over 50 years of age.
